In our example, we have used 192.168.1.150 for AP1 and 192.168.151 for AP2. If you are setting up from zero, then the default IP will be 192.168.0.50

You will need to make sure your LAN settings match your situation:

Our example is 192.168.1.150 and 192.168.1.151 therefore the LAN setting of the PC / Laptop will be of follows:

IP: 192.168.1.100

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Gateway: 192.168.1.1

If your setup is from zero, then the LAN setting should follow this example:
IP: 192.168.0.100
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.50

Configuration LAN of AP1:
IP: 192.168.1.150
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway IP Address: 192.168.1.1
DNS Server: 8.8.8.8 (Google DNS Servers)

Configuration LAN of AP2:

IP: 192.168.1.151
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway IP Address: 192.168.1.1
DNS Server: 8.8.8.8 (Google DNS Servers)
